I believe it well within my jurisdiction and interpretation of the law to deem Legally Blonde a perfect movie. The 2001 comedy about a bright and bubbly Harvard law student who shows the courtroom what’s what while making it fashion boasted a sharp, tight screenplay, a star-making performance from Reese Witherspoon, and too many iconic scenes to mention (though anything with Jennifer Coolidge is a good start). The film spawned a not-so-great 2003 sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde, a very not-so-great DTV spinoff called Legally Blondes, and a very good 2007 broadway musical called, simply, Legally Blonde: The Musical. We’ve known a third, official installment is coming for some time, but now we know exactly when. Per Variety, Legally Blonde 3 will hit theaters May 20, 2022 — the perfect amount of time to get my opening night lewk squared away.
